I'm not a huge fan of them but they're growing on me. I say go for it. Then get a newer style front bumper.

I think they are the best looking tail-light for the Ranger yet. You might consider the eBay LED version as well.

The reason im getting a set is because the guy i got the 03 tail lights from has the 06 tails im basicly traiding him the 03 tails for the 06 tails hes selling his ranger and he said i can have the 06 tails.

Also Tyler those front valances look awesome on 4x4s not 2wds. Just my opinion. I dont think it would look good on mine. If i do a new front valance it will be the edge valance 01/03 with painted valance 4x4 fogs.

Well i went and saw my buddie today he sold his ranger for a 2010 nissan frontier he had 06 tails on his ranger. He told me hed trade me tails since i wanted dibs on the if he ever got rid of them. And he traded his ranger in and was taking all his aftermarket parts off and going back to stock. I got the 06 tails and i gave him back his 03 tails. Anyways enough talk and on too the pics.
